Cracking the code: Fairbanks students learn programming basics
FAIRBANKS — Students in Kris Bell’s class are still too young to be giving anyone orders, but after the work they’ve done during the last two weeks, some of Bell’s students already are bending computers to their will.
Bell teaches sixth grade at University Park Elementary school. She and her students joined millions of others around the world last week participating in Hour of Code week, in which everyone, but mostly kids, is encouraged to spend at least one hour learning about coding.
Code.org, the international nonprofit group administering the program has garnered massive support from the technology community. With financial backing from Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and vocal support from United States President Barack Obama, the program exploded onto the scene last year.

Drive safe! Student safety is in the driver's hands. Leave the house early enough so you are not rushed. Stay in line while flowing through the parking lot to the "stop, drop, and go" curb. Pull up, as far as possible, while wishing your child a good day. Be cautious as you drive to and from school. Children are precious!
